TAMPA, FL – United Soccer Leagues announced the six coaches participating at the 2010 USL Men’s Showcase being held in Charleston, SC at Blackbaud Stadium February 4-6. Managing the professional prospects will be Premier Development League coaches Paul Baber, Dave Dixon, Tony Glavin, Chris Hanlon, Mark Spooner and Armen Toniase.

“We are thrilled to have these six coaches actively involved in presenting the talented players at the USL Men’s Showcase,” said PDL Director of Operations Lee Cohen. “As PDL coaches, they will have a good working knowledge of many of the players’ best abilities and will be able to provide insight into how to present themselves on the field as well as accentuate their best attributes during the event. As USL PDL coaches, they spend every day working on creating an environment that will help develop players and send them to the next level, and the USL Men’s Showcase is an extension of those efforts.”

Returning from last year’s USL Men’s Showcase as coaches are Tony Glavin of the St Louis Lions and the Springfield Demize duo of Chris Hanlon and Armen Toniase.

“This year’s mix of coaches will be great for the event,” added Cohen. “Having three coaches familiar with the event will help everyone in their preparations, while having three fresh faces will provide new philosophies and ideas.”

There are 90 players included in the USL Showcase invitees, 10 of whom have played in the Heartland Conference for either Des Moines, Kansas City or St Louis. ecort service

Weekend Update

PDL Soccer: Springfield Demize vs St Louis Lions Exhibition The Springfield Demize held a raucous Spring Exhibition match against the Tony Glavin-led St Louis Lions on Saturday evening at the Cooper Soccer Complex. The game score was 4-2 in favor of the Demize when I left around 7:30pm when my camera batteries finally expired after attending four games Saturday. Attendance was bolstered by a strong contingent of Glavin SC fans in town for the tournament this weekend. The game was also a final tryout session for a number of players, so we’ll know more about the final make up of the team soon.

Drury Panthers host Wm Jewell Cardinals, Women Apr 5thThere were four games at Drury Saturday afternoon. The William Jewell Cardinal’s women’s team visited, featuring Katie Brooks (Parkview 2005) in her new role as attacking midfielder. That’s her being defended by Chloe Moushey. It was also an opportunity for new recruit Megan Garrad (Glendale 2008) to visit with the team.

Following the women’s game, the Cardinal Men’s team played a pair of games, facing the Drury Panthers and then the Missouri Southern Lions. The Lion’s, which feature a pair of former Southwest All-Stars in Jesse Clevenger (College Heights 2006) and Nate Evans (Cassville 2007), then took on the Panthers. The two games I caught were active, almost heated, until cooler heads prevailed and the players settled down to show some fine soccer. It was good to see Tyson Bramley again, and still uninjured.

Missouri Southern will host the Avila Eagles on Tuesday evening. Avila includes Nixa graduate, and Springfield Demize player Danny Curro, and a new head Coach in Chris Clements, who moves over from the University of Central Missouri Mules.la escort agencies
